I was lucky enough to schedule in some rounds of golf during my honeymoon to Mauritius. This island is a pure golf and honeymoon destination at the same time, so why don’t combine the two reasons…
During our 2 weeks we managed to play three rounds:
- Constance Belle Mare Plage Golf Club, Links Course
- Constance Belle Mare Plage Golf Club, Legend Course
- Le Touessrok Golf Club
During the first week we stayed at the Constance Le Prince Maurice Hotel on the east coast and the first two courses here in this list were free of charge. We were picked up by a shuttle service, brought to the courses in 10 minutes and were provided with excellent service and a GPS cart. No need to say that the golf experience in Mauritius is absolutely top-notch.
However the both courses at Belle Mare Plage were not in the most superb condition than hoped. The greens have just been punched before and at least the Links Course had some more brown-ish areas than anticipated as Mauritius moves from winter to summer now. But overall, two very nice courses indeed.
Next on my list were the Le Touessrok and the Anahita. Unfortunately I only managed to play Bernhard Langer’s Le Touessrok, now known as the Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club. But it was worth the efforts and Anahita, Ernie Els’ masterpiece, supposedly the highlight of Mauritius, remains on my list for the next trip to the Indian Ocean.
In the second week we moved to the St. Regis Hotel in the south-west part of the island. There you’d find the Paradis Golf Club, the Tamarina Golf Club and the Heritage Golf Club close by but we didn’t play them at all.
When you think about holidays in the Indian Ocean and you are a keen golfer, then forget about the Maldives or the Seychelles! Enjoy the golfing variety of Mauritius with its superb golf courses.
